hurricane katrina under george w. bush, it was an absolute disaster because the guys don't believe in government. so when you put them in charge of government, they do a horrible job. that shouldn't be surprising. now, romney and ryan say oh, no, it's okay. even if we're going to cut it by 40%, a romney-ryan administration will always ensure that disaster funding is there for those in need. period. now, isn't that great? that's just basically the same old romney-ryan lie. i'm going to cut it by 40% but it will be exactly the same. no it won't! you'll cut it by 40%. it will be a disaster, literally! and then we turn to noaa's analysis in 2011 of what the cuts would do. they say without data from the satellite closest to the end of its shelf life, the accuracy of its forecasts for major storms like blizzards and hurricanes would be decreased by approximately 50%. and that's not just hey i can't tell what the weather's going to be like or i can't exactly tell where the storm's going to hit. it has ramifications.
enlist to sell this message of what real change he's offering america? the headliners were george w. bush's secretary of state, george w. bush's labor secretary, the governor and current speaker of the house. mitt romney, change you can believe in if you really liked george w. bush and if you like the current republican congress. then we're the kind of real change we're looking for. who cast this thing, the democrats? one of the reasons that the message of real change resonated back in 2008 because the country at large had ceased to be delighted by the george w. bush administration. and it wasn't just the war in iraq or, or, or, or. it was stuff like this. this is the u.s. state department's annual report on global terrorism in 2003. every year they would put together a report like this detailing accidents of terrorism around the world. and the next report after this one, showed that despite the bush administration's claims that we were winning the war on terror, despite the constant claims, the number of terrorist attacks had gone up to its highest level in the two decades the state depa
. if obama is re-elected he will be. and i suspect they would be happy to go back to george w. bush was trying to do a few years ago. but it is a tragedy we haven't really talked about because it is much harder to get something passed. >> how do you see it. >> i think the republican party is kursd and it's cursed itself. and they spent 22 debate, presidential candidates arguing about who was the most against or building the biggest, widest most daunting even electrified wall to keep people out. and mitt romney ran to the right of newt gingrich and rick perry. he was the most try ghent-- strident, round them up and toss them out of the country. >> energy time, and political capital to pass legislation state after state to make it more difficult to vote, primarily for latinos. and third they don't campaign in their neighborhoods or their community t they don't ask for their vote, and finally mitt romney and his unguarded moment at boca raton in his 47 percent speech taped without his knowledge says that he would be better off if he could run as a latino because his father was born in
george w. bush, who tried briefly to governor as a kind of bipartisan moderate, but then turned markedly conservative. so in those days you have the same kind of democratic rage against that republican president that you now have in reverse. it's very difficult to see where the middle ground would be for either of these candidates, and it won't be any easier if we have a narrow result, because that will mean the new president, whoever he is, doesn't have a terrificcally strong mandate from the public. won't be able to say, look, an enormous majority of the public wants to go my way. if this election is very narrow or even worse, contested, the president is going to have a very demanding job. >> when you speak to voters in ohio, everybody says they want compromise, they want to get things done. do they? >> no. by and large when you talk to american voters, and you've done this yourself, i know, yes, everybody wants compromise and everyone wants bipartisanship. but usually the definition of bipartisanship is the other side should come in my direction. so that's a hazard for any candidate,
than what george bush ran on, george w. bush in 2000 and 2004 and i don't know that voter are saying that is the same old plan. i know president had suggested that, but i think what he's talking about is far different in terms of turning the economy around. i don't think voters are necessarily making -- >> the polls don't show. that polls show that voters, women and men blame the hole we got in to on george bush, you can't get away from that. >> you don't hear any talk about it between the two candidates. >> actually i do hear it. >> voters are smarters than most of the pollsters i have to say. they understand that it's not one man or one -- >> that's what that he say to the pollsters. i don't think you can avoid that. the reason i think the economy has -- as much as it should that he has made no definitive case for why he would be better. his so-called plan still leaves the very richest getting the very most. everybody knows that. he hasn't in fact come forward with something that really separates him from the bush years. >> i disagree with the whole recommend takes we're not hearin
an economy that is still on the mend. >> i am certainly not going to defend george w. bush's debt. but now it is $16 trillion in the reach that point under obama. reductions in spending, there are reductions on the rate of growth. certainly for all the picking we do on greece and italy and spain, they have actually spent a little less year-over-year than they have before. the status came from, california, has managed to do a little bit, too. those are all steps in the right direction. we are only going to get there through cutting spending in the united states. 75% tax rates, history has shown, again and again, going back to the first deficit that hoover ran during the great depression when as history has forgotten, began the process of franklin roosevelt continuing deficit spending in order to take up the slack in aggregate demand. you never reduce your debt that way. the tax increases do not reduce the debt. the new money that comes in that is spent on new programs that get created, those programs perpetuate themselves and they require new spending and new borrowing. cutting spending is
guess. [ buzzer ] >> stephanie: who said the decisions are very popular now, like george w. bush presented with a similar option did not strike a similar option. who said that? >> charles nelson riley. [ buzzer ] >> stephanie: no, jonathan chase. i love this article. don't you love it, chris? >> i love it. it's fabulous. >> it's a fabulous program. >> stephanie: sometimes i feel like i'm losing my mind. i done understand why anybody cannot -- we played that fast talker yesterday asking for a link to it -- >> it's on your facebook page. >> stephanie: i have said this over and over i really truly think he has accomplished an unbelievable amount. and jonathan chase, my future husband says a year ago i wrote about the disillusionment that has shadowed obama supporters. all were seen by many democrats at the time as failures it's true all of them including obama have made errors but this tells us we need a realistic baseline to measure them. roosevelt is the only president that comes close is lyndon johnson who's successes were overwhelmed by his failures -- skipp
-organized campaigns that we've seen in recent memory was the 2004 george w. bush campaign. karl rove engineered a very impressive, microtargeting effort, where they started to integrate people's consumer preferences with their voting data to try to more precise -- so instead of just saying, ok, we're going to target everyone that we know is, say, a latino woman, you can actually individually start to target people based on what kind of car they drive, or what kind of cereal they eat, or all kinds of little factors that the people know from, you know, when you fill out surveys or when you buy things, that kind of thing. the obama campaign did that even more impressively in 2008, and they've been building on that ever since. so they've built a really formidable sort of digital, integrated data-targeting effort, that they then have put together with this vast network of field offices on the ground and neighborhood teams and volunteers and through facebook and everything else, so they know practically who all of their voters are, the millions and millions of people that they expect or hope they can drive
1992 phenomenon that has changed that. he one the state twice. in 2000 it went to george w. bush. kerrey., john care the president got a nine point victory in 2008. we really are tossups state. the polls go back and forth. it is difficult to determine who is going to win this state right now. host: is there early voting and how do the hampshire residents vote on election day? guest: there's not early voting, but there's absentee ballot. you have to sign a form saying you are not going to be available on voting day to come to the polls. traditionally, the polls are open from about 7:00 until 7:00. some locations are open until 8:00 p.m. on election day. we have one of the highest voter turnouts in the country. other statistical interesting facts are that we are one of the least taxed states in the nation. the least. we have no income tax, no sales tax. the democratic and republican candidates will pledge on that issue, saying they will not have an income tax or sales tax. our two gubernatorial candidates right now are both running on that issue. host: neil levesque, about the reco
and takes the applaud and beatings for it, was created by george w. bush voted in october and december. it was taken over by obama in the meantime. the a bomb administration picking up for bush came up with a deal to save three companies, general motors, chrysler and delphi. what is delphi? delphi is the old telco auto parts division of gm. you know delco batteries. we had gm that desperate to cut off its own parts and set off delphi as a separate company which immediately pretty quickly went bankrupt. well, down went the vulture's and they pick.delphi corp. out of bankruptcy court for 67 cents, a darned good deal for the entire auto parts division of general motors. 67 cents a share. within two years they flipped it. they went public at $22 a share. share. that is it 3200% prophet that they weren't done. they weren't done. delphi had 29 plans in the u.s. and the delphi group sold it back to gm and the rest, every single plant was sold, was sent off to china. every single uaw job, everyone, 25,200 uaw workers including -- i got a call from michael moore. his dad had the delphi plant an
, -- george w. bush, he won. >> it is not necessarily at the presidential level. indiana, the senate candidate richard murdock look like he was slightly ahead of democrat joe donelly going into the final debate between the two men last monday. in that debate, murdoch made some comments about rape that were taken -- able to be used in the democratic campaign ad. those comments have dominated political coverage for the last couple of days. it has sunk his poll lead. donnelly lead in the race according to internal polls. >> will take you live for to the get out the vote event. >> the future of our country right there. this looks like from the-ryan compan -- romney-ryan country. this is how i look at it. six more days to avoid four more years. you agree with me? i will go along with that. we need him now. it is the fourth quarter. the score is tied. we're in the red zone. the momentum is our way and you can see from this crash -- this crowd. are we going to take mitt over the goal line? of course we are. we will leave from on the field. those of you who were at football practice in your younger da
's the cavalry? it was a rough moment. >> you talk about another bush, 2005, george w. bush, if you talk to people that worked for president bush, they will tell you the low point of their eight years, it wasn't iraq. it wasn't wmds. it wasn't the horror of all of that. it was katrina and being caught sleeping and feeling like they had abandoned people in new orleans. it impacted them in a deeply personal way. these -- obviously people's lives are on the line here, too, but it also -- it's a sign of leadership. >> there is no pollster in the world who can get at the feelings, the emotions, of someone, a family, who has lost power for three or four days. what does that do to this election? that kind of emotional wild card. there's no way of telling what people feel or who they get angry at. >> one thing the president benefits from, i think, because again, i don't think the white house is going to mess this up. i bet you $10,000, they've got in the tri-state area, three extraordinarily aggressive governors, two democrats, one republican. but chris christie -- >> good way of putting it. >>

in the tidewater region. you can see it is compared with 2004 when george w. bush won the state. you can see that president bush won more of the tidewater region than did john mccain in 2008. if you were president obama and you were mitt romney, where would you focus your resources, larry? guest: you can tell by where they are visiting. romney spends a lot of time in the richmond area. he needs a big vote out of those localities, some of which voted for president obama. other various conservative localities like chesterfield county went as high as 45% for president obama in 2008. there's no way for republicans to win statewide and allow centreville to get 45% of the votes to obama. they're both campaigning in northern virginia. it is the linchpin of a statewide victory for president obama. he needs to do well in the big, growing burgeoning prince gallia county and loudoun county -- prince george county and loudoun county, as well as fairfax. yes, the two areas are small, but trees and rocks and acres don't vote, at least in most states and localities. host: what kind of the voting system is

. the point is that it's close. at this point, the 2000, george w. bush looked about as good as barak obama does today, but then the dui story came out and the late break polls changed. so things are still dynamic and it's still possible for things to move between now and 108 hours from now. >> gretchen: thanks so much for your thoughts today. got to wrap it up. coming up, new investigation shows you're spending more on gas than you need to. the auto makers accused of ripping you off. that story coming up next. plus the last jobs report before tuesday's election. so will it help the president or hurt him? charles pain is here with a preview used capital one venture miles for their "destination wedding." double miles you can "actually" use. but with those single mile travel cards...

on defense and more than the pentagon says we need. $25 trillion tax cuts would make president george w. bush look like a banker. he must have been asleep at the switch. you said like jerry mcguire "show me the money." you are the business guy. see me back after the election. who can take you seriously? here is my budget although it is not. see me about it after the election. the reason is there are only three options. if you want to repeal tax exemptions you have to cut the tax exemptions on the middle- class and governor romney says he will raise those taxes. or you can do what they have always done in just let the deficit explode again. when the economy goes it'll be a problem. or you could just gut the federal budget. gut funding for education. gut the student loan program. i spent $3 billion of your money to separate the human genome. he know how much economic activity it has generated? $790 billion. barack obama wants to raise it. they want to cut its. one thing they have not disavowed is they intend to cut medicaid by 33% over 10 years and get back to the state of ohio. medicaid provid
to george w. bush, but in 2004 went to john kerry. the president had a nine-point victory in 2008. we really are a tossup state. the polls go back and forth. it is difficult to determine who is going to win this state right now. host: is their early voting? how do new hampshire residents vote on election day? guest: there are absentee ballots. you have to sign a form that says you not be available on voting day to come to the polls. traditionally, they are open from 7:00 until 7:00. some are open until 8:00 p.m. on election day. we have one of the highest voter turnout in the country. other statistical interesting statistics -- statistical facts are that we are one of the least taxed state in the nation. the least taxed state. we have no income tax, no sales tax. both the democrat and republican candidates will campaign on that issue, pledging that they will not have an income tax or sales tax. are gubernatorial candidates right now are both running on that issue, as a matter of fact. host: talk about the recount laws in the state of new hampshire. what are the rules for that? guest: we have
, george w. bush got a lot of criticism katrina, doing a heck after job brownie, the idea it appeared everything was going along smoothly. we learned days after the fact that there were bodies being discovered and great discord, and bad communication, help wasn't getting readily available and power outages were much more than we were told. and this idea where they're slapping each other on the back and commending themselves for a great job it's going to come back and bite their hineys. >> i think you're right about being a sleeper issue and why the president has been at fema this morning when he's gotday. quickly yesterday on our program we took a look at monthly unemployment number and it actually notched up one tick to almost 8% it's at 7.9%, is it too late for this to impact the election? >> i think it was kind of stating the obvious, if the number been a lot worse than people were thinking or better than people were thinking maybe it would have moved the meter a little bit. i don't know if this one does, i think essentially what we're looking at is, you know, flat employment throu

republican who did not was the former fema director under george w. bush, michael brown. if you don't remember who michael brown is, you might remember this moment during the bush administration. >> there will be plenty of opportunities to help later on. right now, the immediate concern is to save lives and get food and medicine to people so we can stabilize the situation. i want to thank you all and brownie, you're doing a heck of a job. the fema director is working 24/7. [ applause ] >> cenk: well, that became a big dispute later. michael brown spoke out today and said that president obama was moving too fast during this storm which is fascinating. and he then went on to clarify he said in the context of the election, i simply said he should have waited, the storm was still forming people were debating whether it was going to be as bad as expected or not and i noted that the president should have let the governors and mayors deal with the storm until it got closer to hitting the coastal areas along the washington, d.c
program passed by george w. bush. the candidate then worked across the aisles with republicans and with democrats to help t.a.r.p. be passed. basically in the fall before the election actually -- if you were concerned about how to become president, you would want to see the country fail. people would look toward a different party for leadership. not for one minute, did he think about playing politics with, you know such an important issue. >> stephanie: yep. >> which was solvency for the american banking system. >> stephanie: yep. reggie, i know -- they're telling us have a killer schedule. we so appreciate you taking time. please tell the president we got his back! >> we do. >> we'll do that, stephanie. i'll tell him you've got a great hook shot. he can come find you. >> stephanie: you don't understand how i was feared throughout the catholic league in upstate new york, reggie. i appreciate your respect. reggie love, thank you so much. talk to you soon. there he goes.
